New Jersey transplant and sassy brunette Annisa Gobrowski has a problem-literally everyone at her Florida high school is blonde. No lack of golden highlights is going to stop Annisa from making the cheerleading squad. But after accidentally breaking the most popular girl in school's nose, and discovering the cheerleaders all hate her, she starts having second thoughts. Is it too much to ask to land a spot on the team, win the heart of her dreamy crush and make tons of new friends? Annisa is on the verge of giving up, but the cheerleader in her just won't let her quit. She may be a little different, but Sand Dune High had better watch out-this non-blonde is here to stay in this hilariously funny novel from Private author Kieran Scott.

A fresh read for pre-teens and young adults. Realistic cast and easy to read.

Although this was admittedly not the most well written, original, or realistic tale, it was a light, funny and enjoyable read. I definitely took Annisa's side in the book, so her narrative was obviously persuasive enough for me to understand.

The stereotypical-ness of this book is both why I don't like it, and why I do. The bad: everyone is blonde, cheerleaders are mean, etc, etc. It gets old. The good: a funny and actually pretty realistic account of a girl figuring out what she really wants.

Recommended for a nice summer day.

I discovered this book through the Subject Keyword search for "blond" fiction. Like most teen fictions, it was lighthearted and predictable. This isn't a bad thing - I chuckled, I had my happy ending, the boy was cute, etc. It's a good, quick read (and I mean quick: I read it in a day even with my terribly slow dyslexia). A nice, light narrative to just lose yourself in for a day instead of doing whatever you should be doing.
